Our final Seedcamp of the year traditionally takes place in Paris to coincide with the fantastic LeWeb. This week in Paris is always a key date in most startups’ and investors’ calendars, so there’s no better time to meet great people in town. This year, Seedcamp Paris is taking place on Monday 3rd December. Once again, Orrick are kindly hosting us in their beautiful office and we’re proud to have the support of SoftLayer and Yammer as our Event Sponsors.
Last year in Paris, we met great startups like Bluefields and Sush.io, who are now part of the Seedcamp Family. Over the last year they have made immense progress. We also have some of our stars like Teleportd, Stupeflix, Kwaga, Sparkeo and Psykosoft originating from France, so there is no doubt that the local talent is strong!
As always at Seedcamp, we’re on the look out for hugely ambitious founders who think big and whose aim is to disrupt the status quo with their cutting edge technologies. Take a look at our ever-expanding Seedcamp Family to get a feel for what excites us. Whether it’s fashion focused too photo sharing apps, making exchange rate savings or streamlining car repair garages – we want to know what it is you’re building.
We will help you take your company to the next level – giving you access to funding, an immense network of relevant mentors, exposure to both the European and US investor community, and of course the Seedcamp Team itself.
During Seedcamp Paris, 20 of the most promising startups will join us to present, network and be mentored by over of 80 of our triple A class mentors. Some describe the experience as gaining €100k worth of top-level consultancy in a single day. It truly catapults you to a different level and sidesteps months of A/B testing various strategies and the time it takes to build up such a powerful network if going solo. Meeting 19 peers and even going through the application form thinking about the growth of your business can be an invaluable experience.
Following on from Seedcamp Paris, we’ll make the most promising teams our standard offer, (€50k for 8-10%) to join the Seedcamp Family. You’ll then join our year long programme consisting of 3 month office space at Campus London, monthly learning days, a 73 strong peer network to bounce ideas off and gain invaluable insights from. Access to our great network of over 2,000 mentors across Europe and the US, and to top it off, a Founders’ Pack worth more than €150k containing offers such as $25k AWS credits, access to Microsoft Bizspark, the Softlayer Catalyst Program, and many more.
If this all sounds exciting make sure that you don’t miss the deadline of 6 November to apply for our last event of 2012. We can’t wait to see all the great entrepreneurial talent from across Europe and beyond.
